Came across something so cute!!! These little kids were talking to #Santa via Google Hangout!! Isn’t that just so amazing??
At #Hamleys in Phoenix Mills, Mumbai, little kids had queued up to talk to our dear #Santa and give him their toy list via a Google Hangout facility organised by the store. They spoke to him using a mike and shouted out their lists, very excited while they viewed him on a large screen set up in lovely Christmasy theme. The store had given a lovely technological twist to Christmas, actually keeping in mind what kids relate to these days. After talking to the kids in the Mumbai store, Santa spoke to the kids in Delhi and Bangalore!!
Though I thought, my 2 year old was a little young for it, I decided to give it a try and to my amazement, she refused to let go of the mike and blew the cute #Santa some kisses and bye-bye waves and babbled something which I’m guessing he understood!!
Amongst all the traditional Christmas events that are being hosted at #Hamleys which includes the letter writing contest to Santa, the Christmas workshops that happen through the holidays and the lovely Santa parade with all its colourful characters on the 24th and 25th of December (which I am so awaiting) and which are all a delight and something that every kid should experience, the Google Hangout was just so outstanding and new and somehow just connected so well with the new gen.
Malls, I would think are amongst the best places that you can enjoy with your kids, to enjoy the Christmas festivities with all that is spent on the decor, lights and music which gives a real feel of Christmas. Some of the fairs that are held through the holidays are also awesome since the kids can enjoy tons of space, some amazing entertainment and a host of cool food options. And the other thing that I really enjoy with my kid during Christmas, are the parties organised by the clubs, they have a charm of its own. I used to go for these parties as a kid myself and they just have a special place for me…
